Top secret US satellite launched
Posted on 6:51pm Wednesday 4th Apr 2012
A top secret US spy satellite blasted off from the California coast yesterday. The Delta IV rocket lifted off from the Vandenberg Air Force Base, about 130 miles north west of Los Angeles.
Rumour says that the contents of the secret satellite is a high tech replacement for current radar satellites. Some experts speculate that it may be able to see through clouds and at night. The National Reconnaissance Office will not reveal details about this new satellite. They even directed united Launch Alliance to cut off the live broadcast three minutes after lift-off.
Speculators believe that the satellite has been placed over North Korea to monitor aggressive behaviour. This launch could further strain the already tense relationships the USA has with other countries.
